On the top floor of this striking modern four-bedroom home in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow neighborhood, walls, doors, and a ceiling of glass blur the lines between its stylish interiors and the iconic views of the city and the bay, which sweep past the Marin Headlands and the Palace of Fine Arts to the Golden Gate Bridge. The soigné living and entertaining spaces here—which include dining space with richly hued hardwood floors, an open gourmet kitchen, and a family room with a wood-burning fireplace—are filled with glorious sunlight and open through multiple sets of glass doors to terraces and decks. The living room terrace is a private perch for basking in warm light, cool breezes, and enviable views. Built-in heat lamps and a retractable awning provide comforts when they’re needed.

From the ground level, a stunning sculptural staircase rises beside a rear façade composed almost entirely of glass, leading to the floors above, all of which are also linked by a convenient elevator. The highlight of this level is a loft-like living area with an auxiliary kitchen that facilitates alfresco meals on the home’s lovely slate tile patio, which is secluded by privacy-providing landscaping and fencing and features a unique water wall. The finished two-car garage is accompanied by a breezeway with a shower designed for cleanup after a delightful day at nearby Chrissy Field beach.
The home’s street-entry level encompasses a spacious gym with mirrored walls and plentiful windows and a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchenette and a living area that can also serve as a contemplative office or media room. Just below the inviting living and entertaining areas are the private quarters, among them two peaceful guest bedrooms, a shared bath, and the luxurious primary suite, which offers a dressing room with impressive mirrored closets and a lavish light-filled bath with dual vanities, a generous jetted soaking tub, and separate shower that overlooks and opens to a lush planted atrium.
Tucked between the verdant Presidio, the popular Marina, and Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow is a premier address affording this residence coveted proximity to a host of San Francisco’s amenities, including the trend-setting restaurants, boutiques, and spas of Union Street.
